Following the lead of CNN.com, CBSNews.com has begun linking to its CBS affiliates for local news stories. CBS News announced the plans to their affiliates today, asking for the stations to send them links to a story that “deserves the national spotlight.”
It’s great to see more national websites recognizing the quality of local journalism from their TV partners in these markets rather than relying on wire copy that’s available on many sites. It’s also appreciated by the stations who get the traffic spikes, I’m sure.
